Eligibility/Service Area

Eligibility may be determined by a number of factors including where a person lives, their age, what type of trip is needed (e.g., medical, shopping, etc.), Medicaid eligibility, association as a human service agency client, and/or if other transportation is available (e.g., family car, city bus.) General public transportation is limited to passengers who reside outside of the City of Asheville.
